A.J. Dunn, UF MHA Class of 2002

UF MHA alum, AJ Dunn, has recently been elected to join the Mayo Clinic Board of Trustees as of February 17, 2023.

The news came following the quarterly meeting this past February, when Dunn and another colleague, Jed Davis, president and CEO of DDI Inc., were elected to the Board of Trustees of Mayo Clinic in Florida.

“Jed Davis and AJ Dunn are insightful, dedicated and accomplished leaders with a strong background in executive governance and a firm commitment to Mayo Clinic’s mission and values,” says Gianrico Farrugia, M.D., Mayo Clinic’s president and CEO. “We are excited to welcome them to the board and look forward to the energy and enthusiasm they will bring to help us transform health care.”

The Mayo Clinic Board of Trustees is a 31-member group of public individuals and Mayo Clinic physicians and administrators who manage patient care, research, and medical education in the states of Arizona, Florida, and Minnesota.

As a 2002 alum of the University of Florida’s Master of Healthcare Administration program, Dunn has held the role of Chief Administrative Officer at the Mayo Clinic in Florida since December 2021. He began his career with Mayo as early as 2002 as an administrative fellow and would eventually come to hold several leadership positions in the areas of medicine, hospital operations, medical and surgical practices over the course of the coming years. Dunn most recently was chair of Advanced Care at Home and Digital Practice Strategy.

Dunn is board-certified in healthcare management as a fellow in the American College of Heathcare Executives and also is a regent-at-large for the American College of Healthcare Executives. He currently serves on various nonprofit boards such as the Nonprofit Center of Northeast Florida and for the World Affairs Council of Jacksonville. Dunn lives in Ponte Vedra with his family.
